Andar Bahar ​

Hat-trick Hero Shivarajkumar’s highly anticipated movie Andar Bahar has run into a major problem with the producers fighting among themselves causing the delay of its release.

Incidentally, the movie made news because it was the first ever project funded by a team of Shivarajkumar’s fans. Prasad Rao, Bhaskar Rao, Ambareesh H S, Avinash H S, Rajaneesh H and Jagadish A S, all fans of Shivarajkumar, teamed up to form Legends International, which produced Andar Bahar.

However, Jagadish has now approached the Karnataka Film Chambers of Commerce (KFCC) seeking a stay on its release. According to Jagadish, the rest of the producers concealed the fact that he too was a partner in Legends International and was denied visibility in the film’s advertisement and promotions.

Apparently, the KFCC is trying to broker peace between Jagadish and the rest of the producers’ team of Andar Bahar. Shivarajkumar has spoken very high of the project and is eagerly awaiting its release. Renowned playback singer Vijay Prakash is turning a full time music composer through this film.

Directed by Phaneesh S Ramanathapura, the movie has Malayalam actress Parvathi Menon in the female lead role. The movie is supposed to be made in a very stylish fashion with songs as the main highlight. Well-known choreographer Imran Sardhariya has choreographed songs in important tourist destinations in North India.

Andar Bahar was supposed to be released by March end and unless the dispute is resolved the movie may not hit the theatres. Meanwhile, another film of Shivarajkumar, Aryan, which was supposed to go on the floors this week, would see a delayed launch because veteran director Rajendra Babu, who was spearheading the project, had been hospitalized.
